AFAD and FORUM-ASIA statement on Bangladesh: Extrajudicial killings and enforced disappearances amidst political impasse must end

On February 10, 2015 the Asian Federation Against Involuntary Disappearances (AFAD) and the Asian Forum for Human Rights and Development (FORUM-ASIA) jointly released a statement on the current situation of Bangladesh. AFAD and FORUM-ASIA express deep concern over the extrajudicial killings and enforced disappearances by the security forces of Bangladesh, centering on the current confrontations between the ruling Awami League (and its 14-party Alliance) and the BNP-led 20- Party Alliance over free, fair, credible and participatory national elections under a neutral interim government, which has resulted in large scale violence and human rights violations all over Bangladesh.
